    Help!

    I have a workstation which is only running MS-DOS. Now when it boots-up, after it counts the memory it goes directly to the BIOS/CMOS screen. I then select "exit without saving" and it will count the memory again and go right back there.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Your MB battery may be conking out. There
    should be a place in the BIOS screen to
    reset defaults. If that doesn't work you may
    also need to let it autodetect the hard drive(s)
    again. You will have to exit with the "save
    changes" option.

    Let us know what happens. :)

    Found out that the "del" key on the number pad was stuck.
    Funny, after looking and looking, it's seems to always be the simply things.

    Thanks!
